Description

Wonderful hardy Yucca with narrow blue foliage, which stands straight up from the trunk. It can grow to 3.5m tall. The name ‘rostrata’ refers to the fruit, which looks like the beak of a bird (‘Beaked Yucca’). It comes from Mexica & Texas and is found growing on rocky outcrops and in limestone gravel. Yucca rostrata can branch with age.

Beaked Yucca is extremely drought & heat tolerant, and tolerates frosts up to -15C. Truly one of the most attractive feature plants available and looks great single or multi planted. Water once or twice a month in winter, and once a week in summer.

Leave to dry between waterings. Definitely best grown in full sun and in well-draining soil. Excellent for pots, plant in a well draining mix, or cactus & succulent mix.

Yucca rostrata is sometimes confused with yucca rigida, but rigida has thicker and fewer leaves, which are more blue & rigid than yucca rostrata.

Common names: Beaked Yucca, Beaked Blue Yucca

    Hi there Fay,<br />If you have good soil, or you can dig a good sized hole for it (and back fill with potting mix/cactus mix), it is fine to go straight in the ground. They grow quite a large root system with some big roots which almost resemble tap roots, so it can be hard to keep them in the right sized pot. For the size they are at the moment I'd recommend a 165mm pot if you are planning to pot it up. Careful not to over<br />Kind regards, El
